Book Excerpt

We have all heard stories of how Santa Claus came to be. What most people do not know, however, is that Santa has a brother. When Santa was about four years old, his Mom and Dad surprised him with a new baby brother. They named him Sam.

Santa loved his little brother dearly. Sam grew up admiring his big brother, knowing that when he grew up, he wanted to be just like Santa.


About the Author

Frank and Mary Ann Sesko

Frank and Mary Ann Sesko, in addition to being strong believers in the true meaning of Christmas, have always also been believers in the magic of Christmas. For many years, both Frank and Mary Ann have helped Santa bring joy to schools, nursing homes, senior citizen groups, and wherever else Santa went to bring Christmas joy.

As Frank and Mary Ann’s own two children grew, they also came to believe in the magic and true meaning of Christmas.

Though this is the Sesko’s first venture into children’s literature, Frank, a retired high school teacher and administrator, is a published author for the National Association of Secondary School Principals on the topic of behavior management. Mary Ann, a former elementary school teacher and principal, helped guide Santa and Sam’s Big Secret in a direction that could easily be understood by pre-school and elementary school children.
